In the relative security of Atlantic City, Lindsay feels safe for the first time in his life. He and Dane even sneak away from their mage “family” for the occasional date.
All that ends with the arrival of Noah, whose magic is a pure, wild fire fueled by terrible grief over the loss of his wife. To Lindsay’s great surprise, he is assigned as Noah’s mentor, protector and healer. His efforts to help Noah control his immense power aren’t without a few fiery slip-ups.
Just as Lindsay is rising to the challenge, word comes that Moore, the same scientist who once imprisoned Lindsay, has a young a girl who has just manifested a devastating new magic. The desperate mission to free her leaves Noah terribly wounded, Dane captured…and Lindsay the head of what’s left of the family.
With the fate of Dane, his connection to Noah, and the lives of the family resting on his untested shoulders, Lindsay must trust the others—and himself—to save his lover. And everyone else who will suffer if Moore’s plans go unchecked.

Lindsay hadn’t had trouble holding Noah’s mind before, but nightmarish flashes slipped in now, threatening to overwhelm him.When he reached for Noah to check on him, fear and rage and the taste of someone else’s magic on Noah’s mind filled Lindsay up until he could hardly breathe.
“Something’s wrong.” They couldn’t get out of here fast enough. Lindsay’s heart was racing, and not just from Noah’s distress. He’d left Noah alone and something—someone—was hurting him. “We have to go. It’s Noah.”
Dane didn’t ask any questions, much to Lindsay’s relief. “He’s a big boy, he’ll be fine until we get there,” he said quietly. “Breathe.” He led Lindsay between tables to the aisle. “Now you know how I felt in Mexico.”
In Mexico, Lindsay had gotten himself in trouble by leaving Dane when they were being hunted. Noah was nothing but obedient and as vulnerable as a human now that Lindsay held his magic. There was no reason for anyone to hurt him except that he was Lindsay’s.
Lindsay couldn’t keep Noah from defending himself any longer. He could feel Noah scrabbling frantically for magic that wasn’t there, trapped in the illusion Lindsay had woven to keep him safe. Clutching at Dane’s arm, Lindsay released the illusion that held Noah’s magic at bay. “He’s not okay. I have to be there now.”
